Up the road in Yreka important family business was in progress, but in Santa Rosa there wasn’t much I could do about it except maybe boil some water.
To pass the time, I drove out to the crossroads known as Two Rock and parked at the church. From there I pedaled toward the coast to Fallon, a tiny patch of habitation with approximately two houses and a broken-down mobile home. From there I meandered up and down rural roads from ranch to ranch, sometimes with a big headwind, sometimes a big tailwind. On this route I crossed between Sonoma County and Marin County several times, which is why I refer to the expedition as Sonomarin.
